I can't find a map of the bike and/or run for this race. Sure would be nice to know where I'm going. Am I missing it?

They haven't posted the routes yet but I have "heard" they are the same as last year.

As I have road this course a few times here is what to look out for.

Good hill to start the bike, be ready.

When you turn left on Wallace it is decent asphalt but it has cracks in it. They are the long type of cracks from the side of the road sinking. The nice ones where if you run a tire into them it could end in a bad day.

Goliad/205 is the chip seal part. Rough but not bad. Its short though.

On the way back you will turn right on Goliad/205 from John King. About 1/2 mi down there is a guardrail on the side of the road. The road passes over a small creek. Don't get close to the guardrail. The shoulder of the road has falling in a spot and is a nasty dip. Stay close to the road there.

Heading down Sims its smooth and flat. At the rt hand turn the road is very rough turning onto Mims. It sucks because it kills momentum.

If you do the free swim clinic and open swim on Saturday I will be the guy in the Kayak at the first corner on the swim. Say Hi.

After I left the running store, I couldn't stop thinking about the sprint tri and how much of a challenge it would be for me. So instead of joining a gym, I started riding my bike and it felt great.

I couldn’t help but feel that the race had beaten me. Perhaps duathlons were more for me? No, I was more determined than ever to succeed. I was determined to get on top of my swimming.

A powerful attraction of the calories in/calories out paradigm is its apparent simplicity. Unfortunately, the human body isn’t so simple and that is why this seemingly wonderful formula doesn't work.

This life of mine is not so different from yours. It has a multitude of similarities. I suffer from uncertainty, I get nervous at the thought of registering and when getting to the starting line.

I am not going to buy a tri-suit before my first tri - I want to make sure I am going to stick with this before I spend a lot of money on it so I want to figure out what will work best.

I couldn't believe that my splits kept getting lower! I started to run harder after I passed the "5 km" sign and picked a few people that I wanted to pass.
